Caravan Awning Storm Damage

The late summer storm season has well and truly hit us over the last few weeks and many caravan owners have experienced damage to their awnings from the strong winds whipping up while their awning was still extended.

This damage is not only limited to the awning fabric itself but strong winds can also bend the awning hardware which is the arms of the awning that extend out from the caravan walls. What many caravan owners either forget or don’t realise is that when their awning is damage in a storm most insurance policies will cover its replacement.

Why do I say replacement? The fabric of a caravan awning is attached to a spindle that is pre-tensioned at the time of manufacture. The replacement awning fabric is purchased on a new tensioned spindle – not on its own to be wound onto the existing spindle.
